Title: SYSTEMS FOR TREATMENT OF DISEASE VIA APPLICATION OF MECHANICAL FORCE BY CONTROLLED ROTATION OF NANOPARTICLES INSIDE CELLS
Abstract:
The present disclosure describes systems, apparatus, and methods for application of dynamic magnetic field (DMF) treatment to direct movement, and specifically rotation, of magnetic particles associated with a target structure, so that mechanical force is applied to the target structure. In certain embodiments, the present disclosure describes use of an alternating current superconductor (ACSC) to greatly enhance the magnetic field amplitude so that the field can penetrate deeper into a body with sufficient amplitude to control movement of the nanoparticles within a working volume.
